Deadlines for the 2020-2021 Choice Plan

  • Applications accepted April 13 through "Closing Date to be determined" *
  • Parents notified by May 27, 2020 if student is accepted
  • Parents confirm decision to attend by June 5, 2020
  • Wait List families notified of any openings and must confirm decision on intent-to-enroll by June 26, 2020
* NOTE from KISA: For those districts accepting online applications, the Kent ISD School of Choice plan application may be submitted beginning April 13, 2020. However, due to the “Stay Home, Stay Safe” Executive Order (EO 2020-21), which directs all Michigan businesses and operations to temporarily suspend in-person operations until 11:59 p.m. on April 13, paper and in-person applications will not be accepted until the closure order is lifted. We recognize that this presents a challenge for those without internet access and school districts which only accept paper applications. As a result, the application closing window, originally scheduled for May 15, 2020, at 4:00 p.m., will be extended accordingly. A closing date for applications has not been determined until more information becomes known about the status of reopening school operations. Please know that the application process is not on a first-come, first-served basis, so there is no advantage for those who are able to submit applications online when the window opens on April 13. Please check back to this website regarding the closing date for submitting applications.
